Momoiro Clover Z and KISS to release collaboration single

It has been announced that hard rock band KISS and Momoiro Clover Z will come together as “Momoiro Clover Z vs KISS” early next year for a collaboration single. The CD jacket photo shoot and PV filming has already been completed in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This is the first time KISS has collaborated with a Japanese group. The single will be sold in two types: a KISS version and Momoiro Clover Z version. The KISS version comes with only a CD consisting of three newly recorded songs and off-vocal versions, while the Momoclo versions comes with a CD consisting of the title track, a couple song and off-vocal version as well as a Blu-Ray disc.

Furthermore, Momoiro Clover Z is set to participate at KISS’s final performance of their 40th anniversary tour at the Tokyo Dome on March 3, 2015.

This forthcoming collaboration single is currently untitled but will be released January 28, 2015 on iTunes to about 120 countries worldwide. It will mark the first of a consecutive release of 3 singles in the first half of 2015 for Momoclo.

        • Mario San

          sadly I haven’t seen much ragers, so far :( I guess Babymetal really killed most of them^^

    • Love Rice

      Already beat Queen Jolin and Queen Namie’s collab LOL. You never disappoint Japan!

      Didn’t see that coming

      First Babymetal and now this… Metal heads probably think the Japanese are just blatantly mocking them.

        i kinda have the same thoughts too…

      this just shows that even metal need some cuteness in them.
      even metal fans should be bored seeing and hearing dark colors and macho performers all the time, besides more female fans will be good for the metal industry too.
      and since it seems both KISS & Momoiro Clover Z become famous due to their elaborate performances, so this collaboration might not be that surprising after all.

      Idk i usually roll my eyes at those kind of concepts but i think it’s cute? I love their outfits!!

      MomoClo and Kiss who would have thought these two would ever do a song a together. Looking forward to hearing it.

    • Seekaii

      Worst idea ever. Have they not heard of Babymetal? Not that I would have much faith in a KissxBaby collab either.

        I dont think their styles match. Metal is not just one uniform genre
